GLENN BECK: Then Obama suspends the deepwater drilling at 1,500 meters. He says, "He-ey, that's dangerous. 1,500 meters, that's crazy!" PetroBras is drilling at 2,777 meters. Obama knows it and loans $2 billion to? PetroBras. Last stop? PetroBras shareholders get rich. Oh my gosh, we're back at the beginning! Shareholder, PetroBras, getting rich. You getting screwed.

REP. DAN BURTON: The thing that really is funny about this is we just sent $2 billion to Brazil so they could do offshore drilling. [snip] We've got the energy here in the United States to solve these problems. We don't need to be sending Mr. Soros money in Brazil so he can make more money by doing offshore drilling with our taxpayers' money.

REP. LOUIE GOHMERT: And of course this country, um, apparently standing for $2 billion to help Brazil do deep exploration, and that'll make um, uh, hundreds of millions for uh, Mr. Soros.
